Troubleshooting / Re: How to back up save files?
« on: 2020-05-05 12:16:02 »
Find your saves and copy them some where else. Where are your saves? depends on the version of the game your playing and how

https://sourceforge.net/p/blackchocobo/wiki/FAQ/#pc-saves

Good to see you got it sorted out.

28
Today I Added about 100 more field locations. You can now use Black Chocobo to access every field in the fieldmap. A reminder that some will expect specific game progress values so your mileage may vary depending on the field you pick and the progression variables in your save.

In addition to adding the remaining locations i also fixed a few errors in the FF7Location data like the one USB reported above.
@USB thanks for the report!!!

@Meical No i have not seen this. What version of the game are you playing and are you playing with any mods?

29
Not sure what you are doing wrong but the screen shots were created by putting the saves to those locations so they do save.

Go download the newest continuous version and try again .. If its still happening let me know.

@jons Be Sure to check the save location changes checkbox on the location tab Before you change the location to the debug room

Great work!

Your gates and objects archive has some files with non lower case characters in the file names. All items in char.lgp should be named with lower case letters.

To answer the question of how many are done in total between this and others, I currently have 98 Updated and new fields that is about 1/7th or 14% of all the fields.

32
If you are asking if you can edit the achievements file and unlock achievements, Yes you can open Black Chocobo and use the Achievement Editor (F10) to unlock them.Open the Achievements.dat file in your user folder. If you are asking if you can alter the achievements themselves so that they unlock under new conditions, Then the answer is no we can't do that.

Your Welcome! Thanks for enjoying it!
We are almost there only two more formats then we can edit them all (until a ps5, xbsx release of the PC port, althought maybe this will be the first gen without one due to the release of FF7 remake.)
In addition to formats the only real area left is to finish the game progress reversing and finish my code modernizing effort.

35
I'm trying to update the Sector 7 - Sum Progress field in the game progress tab to "The Pate is Falling" but it always goes to "Initial Settings". Is this a glitch? Can this field be set?
Yes and I have fixed the error. Please try the newest Continuous build. It should write it correctly now. I may have not fixed the display code.

36
thank you very much

it runs :)
Good to know. I'll Keep the building the 32bit version.

37
Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit OS

already tested the newer version 1.10.0 I already showed in the link from https://imgur.com/I3ODTGi
I have updated the build to build a 32 bit . (still fails on XP :( )
@Pating please try this release and let me know if it runs for you now.
https://github.com/sithlord48/blackchocobo/releases/download/v1.10.0/Black_Chocobo-1.10.0-win32.zip

38
What version of windows are you running? I think you need windows 7+ (64-bit).
Try the newer version 1.10.0.

39
Hi!
Thank you for your work, sithlord48.

I use the Nintendo Switch version of the savegame but I face some issues. It seems like the byte offsets are different (maybe it is region related, I use the EU/German version) because I get shown different levels for the first character and artefacts of the texts in the savegame loading screen after modding.

I tried the new 1.10.0 with official Switch support

It seems like the Bytesize of the original savegame is: 65.109 Bytes
For the modified one it was bigger (Unfortunatelly I cannot see the original size)

Thank you for your support

:-)
Use checksum to extract your saves. Switch saves are the same as a PC save and there is no region difference. If you continue to have issues please provide a link to your unedited save file.

FF8 Tools / Re: [PSX/PC] Save editor - Hyne (1.10.0)
« on: 2020-01-28 11:55:52 »
I assume it's a PC decompressed format (don't remember who said that to me). If there are headers or hashes, I have no example of that.
The ps4 exports for ff7 are around 10MB of crypto blob . Inside I'm sure its just PC save(s). You might want to check this if you can for the ps4 version.

Thank you I had a patch for hyne but i was not able to test locally due to the missing file

Nice work on the PSV / VMP signing! (both hyne and bc will support this at their release version 1.10.0, how did we end up at the same version.)

Notes on your psv/ vmp  object:
 - IV is the same for both formats.
 - PSV support for type 2 (check for a 0x2C @ byte 0x38) is not needed FF8 saves can not find its way in to this format It is only for PS2 Saves exported from a PS3 Look for 0x14 in byte 0x38 to be sure you have the correct format when loading a save
 - The Signing algorithm is the same for both VMP and PSV formats only the key and the data sent to be signed is changed. (i use one function todo both signatures)
 - The Sha1 object added from dots-tb's work is not needed you can use QCryptographicHash to generated this hash instead (I'm using it to generate MD5 sums for the pc rerelease already so why include another object? ).
 - The AES object  can be stripped down a bit as we will never use some functions ( my aes.c)
 - For non FF8 PSV exports (if you support this) Some additional work is needed. You should write a size and preview size data (0x40 and 0x5C get the same data its 00 20 00 by default and is the block size * 0x2000) you can refer to my fix_psv_header function for how i am doing it.
 - PSV names matter ALOT they must match the internal name stored in the file (starting at 0x64) the name is done like this 
Code: [Select]
QString name = ff7->region(s).mid(0, 12);
name.append(QTextCodec::codecForName("Shift-JIS")->fromUnicode(ff7->region(s).mid(12)).toHex().toUpper());

FF8 Tools / Re: [PSX/PC] Save editor - Hyne (1.10.0)
« on: 2020-01-27 12:33:15 »
  • Adding ability to export one save of the list to PS4, Switch or PS3 formats (not just PC format)
How do you write to PS4 saves?

Also the source seams to be missing CryptographicHash.cpp and CryptographicHash.h files

44
Doesn't seam since i use C++17 now. And the image with Qt5.11.3 (what 1.9.90 used) does not seam to support it.

Also I have enabled VMP (PsP and PsVita) export / save. I no longer have a PSP or Vita to test with so if someone could test this for me and get back to me about it . Use the Continuous Build to always have the most update date version.

Inside you install folder should be an App.log, you might want to post its contents here no one can do anything more guess whats wrong without it.

BC Updates
PSV Signing and Exporting now works without the need for user supplied keysI didn't crack the format i was pointed to code that this and was able to use it to get it working in ff7tk. VMP maybe soon ;)

PSV EXPORT NOTES
 The files names are really important when you export so be sure you are saving with Valid Region Info
  You can not export a psv currently with out having first opened a file region info is important with these as its inside the header. This has an easy fix at least.
 Please see this https://github.com/sithlord48/ff7tk/issues/51 for correct names to use when saving PSV files

Where do i get it?
Use the continuous release.

7th Heaven / Re: Not recognizing KB or Controller
« on: 2020-01-18 12:49:02 »
by default the keys mapped to ff7 are on the number pad.  Be sure numlock is on and try those buttons. And controllers should work if you plug them in before you launch the game.

48
I think DLPB fixed the W-Item glitch for part of his project.

Im pretty sure you can do #3 and #5
#4 maybe possible
#1 I think may be hardest for you to do

Team Avalanche / Re: GUI 2.1.0
« on: 2019-12-11 22:52:17 »
So if your intent is to improve other languages what you want to do is find the original images and upscale and redo from there. i cannot remember the command offhand that will export the png files but that is what you want to do
You can do this with aali's driver.  Add the option
Quote
save_textures = on
to the config file and every texture it loads it will save to the mod_path.
